DE Wynn hoping to land starting role

Bills newest DE Jarius Wynn, who signed Tuesday, has found it difficult staying with one club after his first three seasons in Green Bay. He’s suited up for three teams in the past two seasons, so he’s determined to earn himself a starting role so he can be a bigger contributor to Buffalo’s defense week in and week out.

“I guess the biggest thing has been the opportunity,” said Wynn when asked what is hardest about playing for multiple teams in a short period of time. “Getting the opportunity to really just showcase my talent. I want somebody to give me a realistic opportunity to come in and play and that would be the best thing.

“That’s what I think has been the problem. I’ve been grateful to whatever team allowed me to get on the field and show my talent. I feel like I have shown my talent in different situations, but I never just had an opportunity to really just play (week in and week out).”

Wynn played a steady rotational role for Dallas last season and saw some similar playing time early in his career with Green Bay, but entering his sixth NFL season Wynn wants more.

“I feel like in Dallas I played 30 percent and I think I did pretty good,” he said. “So I feel I have shown and proven that I can play in this league and be part of a rotation. But I’m not looking to come in and be part of a rotation. I want to come in and win the starting position and showcase my talent and be able to help my family out.”
